Buying a copy from a local store will just give you the same CD that
you can download (or an out of date one). It will not fix any issues
you had with the install. If you try again to install and tell us
what the problem is we may be able to help.

Yes if you do a full install. Do I understand from the above that you
have been talking all this time about a wubi install? If so then I do
not know whether there is a way of recovering the data. If this is
not a wubi install then you can boot off the live CD and access the
data in the Ubuntu partition, or there are ways of re-installing
without loosing data, or you could just increase the partition size
and may not need to re-install at all. So the critical question is
whether this is a wubi install we are talking about.

I'm going to see if I can first install with a live CD. I've tried it
several times but for some reason my system is not rebooting from the
CD. I have tried several times but have so far failed. I just installed
this from Wubi. I'm also backing it up onto my 'passport'. Let's see if
I can later restore some work from it. Don't know.
